FMI is solely responsible for the mobility conversion performed on these vehicles. FMI is neither affiliated with nor sponsored by Honda Motor Co. Inc. (“Honda”) or its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates or dealers (Collectively, the “Honda Companies.”) The Honda Companies specifically disclaim any and all warranties pertaining to the conversion of the original
Honda vehicle. The consumer should be aware that:
I. The Honda Element with the FMI X-WAV conversion installed has been independently crash tested and meets or exceeds all N.H.T.S.A. and FMVSS requirements. For liability reasons Honda has requested we post the following disclaimer:
Changes made by FMI to the Honda vehicle may affect the safety performance of the vehicle and therefore the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s safety ratings of the unconverted vehicle may not apply to the converted vehicle. For example, weight distribution changes made by FMI could affect crash test and rollover test results. Independently, the Honda Element with the FMI X-WAV conversion installed has been crash tested by FMI and meets all N.H.T.S.A and FMVSS requirements.
II. The Honda Element with the FMI X-WAV conversion installed has passed all CARB standards for air pollution. For liability reasons, Honda has requested we post the following disclaimer:
Changes made by FMI to the Honda vehicle may affect the environmental and fuel economy performance of the vehicle and therefore the U.S. Environmental Agency's ratings of the unconverted vehicle may not apply to the converted vehicle. For example, weight increases to the vehicle could alter the vehicle's greenhouse gas score, air pollution score and fuel economy rating. All such changes are the exclusive responsibility of FMI and, where applicable, are covered solely by FMI’S Limited Warranty. The Honda Companies have neither tested nor approved any aspects of FMI’s conversion.
III. Changes made by FMI to the Honda vehicle may void portions of the Honda warranty. The Honda warranty will be voided to the extent that such changes adversely affect the unconverted vehicle or its performance or cause the failure or degraded performance of a component supplied by any of the Honda Companies. For example, structural changes made to the body of the vehicle could affect the vehicle's structural integrity, which would void the Honda Limited Warranty on the affected parts. In most cases, affected parts will be covered under the Freedom Motors USA, Inc. conversion warranty. Please contact Freedom Motors for details.
